God's people have always been characterized by giving, but the way they've given has changed over time. For example, people no longer bring goats, sheep, calves, and grain to God as they did in the Old Testament. Giving money is more straightforward, cleaner, and theologically sounder since Jesus has made the ultimate sacrifice. The way money is exchanged changes over time, we at LifeSong are extending to members a new way to offer their financial gifts to God.
Anyone who would like to give to LifeSong online is welcome to do so through our church website. The system makes it easy to quickly transfer money from a bank account or debit card to the church safely and securely. One-time gifts and recurring withdrawals can both be set up, and generosity can be given either to the church's general fund, specific church project, or church ministry.
Giving is an essential aspect of the Kingdom. Luke records Jesus himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). At LifeSong, we want to encourage all members to pray about giving and give as God leads them.

Why Automate Your Giving?
Automating your giving is a simple and easy way to prioritize financial discipleship by choosing to offer the first portion of your income to the Lord, regardless of whether you’re in town, on vacation, or at work. For LifeSong, having steady and stable giving throughout the year helps us to plan better and reduces stress during the leaner months of the year (e.g., summer).
